Jetskiing on Lake LBJ

Lake LBJ, named after President Lyndon B. Johnson, is part of the Highland Lakes chain of seven lakes starting in Austin and going northwest for over 85 miles. Lake LBJ starts near Horseshoe Bay, 50 miles from Austin, and goes all of the way to Kingsland. Lake LBJ is normally a constant level lake and is just over 21 miles long with a maximum width of 10,800 feet. Lake LBJ is perfect for sailing, boating and all water related activities.

Lake LBJ was originally known as Lake Granite Shoals when it was formed in 1950. The lake is a result of the Granite Shoals Dam (now called the Wirtz Dam), which is managed by the Lower Colorado River Authority. In 1964, the lake was renamed Lake Lydon B. Johnson in honor of the U.S. Senator for Texas who went on to become a U.S. President. President Johnson and his wife even had a home on the lake that they enjoyed during his presidency and after.
